  1. AUTOMATED SYSTEM FOR DETERMINATION OF JP-8 SMOKE POINT AND LUMINOMETER NUMBER

    SBC: Engineering and Scientific Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A10AT010

    Engineering & Scientific Innovations, Inc. (ESI) in cooperation with University of Cincinnati (UC) will develop an automated, standalone radiative heat and smoke point measurement device that provides improved accuracy and removes much of the subjectivity of the current method (ASTM D1322) by incorporating more modern and automated equipment. The proposed system utilizes a standard, laminar dif ...

  2. Plasmonic Nanoantennas for Single-Molecule, Surface-Enhanced-Raman-Scattering Based Sensing

    SBC: L. C. PEGASUS CORP.            Topic: A10AT014

    This proposed project is concerned with the design, fabrication, and demonstration of a new class of plasmonic nanostructures for single molecule surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy for biological and chemical sensing applications. A complete design of the plasmonic nanostructures with large local field enhancements (E/E0>100) will be formulated, and the fabrication procedures will be developed fo ...

  3. GHz-range photon counting with single-photon avalanche photodiodes

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: A11aT008

    In the past few years, there have been promising demonstrations of new approaches to short-gate (i.e., sub-nanosecond) operation of single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) with gating frequencies as high as 2 GHz. However, these demonstrations have had limitations, including operation at just a single fixed frequency, fairly high residual afterpulsing levels, and the lack of industrialization req ...

  4. MOCVD of High Performance Complex Oxide Films for Switchable Film Bulk Acoustic Resonators

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A11aT016

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners will develop high efficiency, switchable RF filters. The technical approach is based on thin films of paraelectric BaxSr1-xTiO3 and SrTiO3, which can show piezoelectric behavior under an applied DC bias. When integrated into resonator structures, these materials can act as both an RF filter and an RF switch. Combinin ...

  5. Innovative Hardware Technologies for Electromagnetic Attack Rejection in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radars

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA10T001

    Under this STTR Imaging Systems Technology (IST) will apply novel Plasma-shell technology and expertise with gas plasma systems to shield and protect BMDS Radar. Plasma-shells are tiny hollow gas encapsulating shells. When energy is applied across the shell, the gas inside ionizes into a plasma. Theory of plasma-electromagnetic (EM) field interaction shows that, under appropriate conditions, pl ...

  6. Low Defect Density Mercury Cadmium Telluride on Silicon by Bulk Layer Transfer

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) has been described as one of the most technologically significant semiconductor materials and is the most widely used material for long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging. The current challenge is to produce MCT over large focal plane array size at low cost and high reliability without compromising sensitivity or noise performance. MCT on silicon substrates is highly attr ...

  7. Nanoscale Conformable Thermal Interface Materials with Electronically Enhanced Heat Conduction

    SBC: ADAP Nanotech LLC            Topic: AF09BT22

    ABSTRACT: Thermal management has become a critical factor in designing the next generation of microprocessors. The current technology is unable to meet the increasing demands. Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have excellent heat transport; however, the heat transport across the interface continues to be a challenging hurdle. Here, we have drawn a connection between heat transfer, electronic conduction, ...

  8. Hybrid Optical and Magnetic Ultracold Atom Chip System

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: This work proposes the design of a complete, compact, hybrid atom chip system for producing ultracold atoms, allowing subsequent control and manipulation of ultracold atoms using both optical and magnetic fields. Its emphasis is on optical lattice potentials and also complex potentials imposed by spatially varying magnetic and optical fields. Atom chips that incorporate optical windows ...

  9. Securing Applications by Limiting Exposure

    SBC: ALTUSYS CORP.            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: This proposal details an ambitious effort to develop Virtualization-based secure application Containers and Controlled Communication System (VC3S). The VC3S provides secure application/module isolation, mediation of inter-application/module communication, as well as dynamic/intelligent exposure to the Internet. The proposed approach is three-pronged and enables the application of the pr ...

  10. MWIR lasers using Type II quantum well active regions on InP substrates

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT20

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop modeling and initial concept feasibility demonstration for MWIR lasers that span the 2.4-4 um wavelength span. The laser active region design is based on a novel quantum well design that is grown on InP substrates. The laser will leverage our team's recent advances and demonstrations in quantum well design be use Princeton Lightwave's laser fabrication pl ...
